Installing MantisBT

from a fresh CentOS 6 install (don't forget yum -y update and a reboot), run the following commands:

  1. cd /tmp
  2. wget
  3. wget
  4. md5sum -c mantisbt-1.2.11.tar.gz.digests
  5. tar -xzf mantisbt-1.2.11.tar.gz
  6. mv mantisbt-1.2.11/ /opt/mantisbt-1.2.11
  7. chown -R apache:apache /opt/mantisbt-1.2.11
  8. ls -n /opt/mantisbt-1.2.11/ /var/www/html/mantisbt
  9. yum -y install httpd mysql mysql-server php php-mysql
  10. vi /etc/php.ini
  11. change line 946 to match:
    • date.timezone = "America/New_York" (should match cat /etc/sysconfig/clock output)
  12. chkconfig httpd on
  13. chkconfig mysqld on
  14. service httpd start
  15. service mysqld start
  16. mysqladmin -u root password 'newPassword'
  17. mysqladmin -u root -p -h localhost.localdomain password 'newPassword' (enter newPassword from above when prompted)
  18. iptables -I INPUT 5 -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
  19. iptables -I INPUT 6 -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 443 -j ACCEPT
  20. now open your browser, and point it to:
    • http://yourServerOrIPHere/mantisbt/admin/install.php
  21. add newPassword from above in the password field
  22. click the "Install" button.

Total time with Cobbler from PXE boot to creating your first project: ~20 - 25 mins.  This includes the time to install the OS from scratch, update it, reboot, and go through the commands above manually.  For those interested in specs, this was run on my setup.

Once you're done here, you'll want to start Configuring MantisBT.

Total score for ease of install: 8/10
